Admiral Grooming – Admirably British
– Sponsored Post –
Men’s grooming has always been something I’ve never really delved too deep into. I would scratch the surface when it came to face, beard and body but since I’ve moved out I’ve delved deeper into the whole grooming session. But my quest to find any products that stopped my skin from being so greasy and at the same time dry was find near impossible.
The Perfect Find
Then stumbling on the wide web I came across Admiral Grooming, I instantly read reviews about the company to see if they were any good. After reading countless amazing reviews I knew I just had to try them. Getting into contact with them I was able to review them and share with my lovely people who read my blog just how good these products are.
I have been gifted a gift set and 2 other products which are stand-alone. The gift set there are 3 products which cover the basics of grooming as follows, Mens Hair, Face & Body.
The Moisturising Body Wash – 200ml
The Moisturising body wash is the perfect addition to any shower or bath. For me, I love feeling clean and ready to face the world, this body wash made me feel just that. It’s packed with nutritious goodies that nourish, moisturise and soothe the skin. This product contains Black Quinoa, which is a gluten-free seed that is a well-known superfood that has many benefits which include keeping skin youthful, bright and glowing. It made my skin feeling clean and very smooth. It’s most certainly going to stay in my Shower routine from now on!
Hydrate & Shine 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner – 200ml
The Hydrate & Shine 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner is supposed to give the hair volume and to keep it youthful. However, my hair is very coarse and very stubborn when it comes to new Shampoos and Conditioners. When I tried this it did make my hair very soft which for my curly hair isn’t great. It goes limp, lifeless and the curls tend to drop out and just stick out everywhere. But I do have to say my hair has never felt so soft. If it’s soft hair you’re looking for and you don’t have curly hair, this product is most certainly for you. It boasts that the product contains Avocado which has benefits to the skin and hair, hydrating the scalp and preserving the hairs youthfulness.
Antioxidant Moisturising Balm – 50ml
This has to be my favourite out of all of the products. The Antioxidant Moisturising Balm hydrates and strengthens skin. After I have used this my skin felt so smooth and hydrated. As I mentioned previously I suffer from combination skin ( Dry and oily) this product has been a godsend. It helps protect sensitive, irritated skin and locks in moisture. The added Artichoke extract in this product is used as a regenerating ingredient, diminishing toxins, soothing any inflamed skin and also reducing and redness on the skin’s surface. For someone who dealt with severe acne as a teenager, I was a little worried about this product at first the wrong ingredient would make come out in spots. However, this had the opposite effect. My skin felt so smooth and felt fresh after using this. It’s by far my favorite product and most certainly will be staying in my routine.
The next two products came separately.
Detoxifying Face Scrub
The Detoxifying Face Scrub removes built-up dirt and excess oils from the skin’s surface by exfoliating, detoxifying and cleansing the face. The scrub contains Cucumber extract which consists of antioxidants and silica that rejuvenate skin, having a cooling and soothing effect for those who suffer from sensitive or irritated skin after shaving. Another of my favourite products. This product has made my skin so soft and once I’ve used it my skin feels hydrated and cleansed of all the dirt build up from day to day life. Another I shall be keeping in my routine.
Nourishing Beard Oil
I never used to be one for beard products, I didn’t see the point of them. Until I used the Admiral Nourishing Beard Oil. You can use it as a beard or pre-shave oil which gives you two for the price of one. The beard oil penetrates the skin and moisturises the hair. Which makes moisturises the hair to make them soft. After using the beard oil twice I could already see a difference in my beard. It was so soft, just like my hair my beard is very coarse. After applying the beard my beard just sucked up the moisture, which really made a difference with my beard.
Maximum Control Matte Hair Moulding Paste
I don’t tend to use any products in my hair other than hairspray to keep my curls in place. So the molding paste wasn’t really my cup of tea. This product is more for guys that have straight hair or want to add texture to their hair. My hair doesn’t need texture or styling as the curls are misbehaved and do as they please. But I can tell from the paste it looks very lightweight and smells amazing.
